    Have any ski film makers started using radio controlled multicopters?

    Really, such as? I though that too but then realized booms could be at work, and big cameras require too much heavy lifting. TGR used them?

    Sherpas, TGR, MSP.

    When a helicopter is impossible to get/to use due to a budget or location they are used.

    Great, could become more common as prices come down, and with FPV piloting too.



    More follow cam.

    2012: A Carving Transformation (1:39)

    I am expecting to release 2 products formally this week relating to the polecam.

    The first product is an addon pack for any existing pole with a tapered end, in particular, one with a Leki compatible tip. That tip is removed prior to installation.

    The HC tip is pressed onto the end of the pole and bonded with a water and cold resistant sealant which I can supply. This bonding does not produce the main component of connective strenth, the friction does, so theoretically this adhesion is optional.



    (a cable lock can be placed through the red piece after taking off the black circular adapter)



    The tip comes with a camera thread (the black circular adapter) or there is the option to use 1 or 2 ball heads (opposing each other) which I can supply, and the safety ball.

    I use the Gossamer Gear LT4S in my setup (they said they are low on stock until the winter is over) but any Carbon Fiber pole would be ideal. The 3-section could be a good choice as it has an extended handle, and can fit in a pack. I haven't tested the HC tip as a substitute for the Black Diamond designed tips but it shouldn't be a problem (any tapered tip should be fine.)

    If the handle of your pole has a camera thread (such as the GG LTS4,) you can place the monopod basket on it or the safety ball (or another ball head.)





    Important:

    I am also launching a second product that comprises of a complete pole made from separate high quality 30cm carbon rods, with each coupled together by a high quality aluminium thread so it can be disassembled and placed in one's backpack when not in use. It will have an extra long cork handle (as seen here):



    and it will also have a threaded insert in the handle for safety ball, additional cameras or monopod basket. I am particularly looking forward to this pole and it shouldn't be expensive. It should be very slick, light, aerodynamic, strong and not too expensive. It will also have the option for a single Gopro tip that is vibration dampened.

    Product pages, pics and prices should be on my site hopefully by the end of the week.

    Thank god it's aerodynamic, I was afraid the excessive drag would prevent me from achieving terminal velocity.

    Yeah, I learned that some carbon fiber poles are actually more aerodynamic than others!

    I like your user handle. Perhaps you're a heartcarver and you don't even know it. The speedboards (or are they boardskis?) are currently under construction... need to have something to film. Things are changing.

    Oh I know it. I learned to carve switch on a pair of Head Liners many years ago.

    Started using the "handle" in '96 when I got my 1st online account because I usually ski a snowboard.

    OK. What are you on now? What ski precisely was that?

    But take any ski out of its comfort zone and carving becomes sliding. That's when I need to heartslide, and within the slide I can throw in a bit of carve at the apex of the turn. I found that very hard to do on my SL sidecut skis. They just don't have the beef.

    Beef shmeef, the Heads are 94cm, 130 tip and 95 waist. they're designed for carve training rather than tricks and if you don't keep your weight centered with equal pressure at "terminal velocity" you'll eat groom (never use'em pow).

    Only bust'em out once in a blue moon when the off piste is crap and I need a change of pace from real carving on the race board.

    Sounds good, I'd like to see some polecam footage for further elaboration. That'd help to improve one's boardskiing as well ... better than having an instructor tell you why you're no good for $35. You can see it for yourself.

    They will be reverse camber and twin tip, with some rocker.

    Hi, the skis have been built. Can't wait to try out this Jan...



    Power of Heart (3:24)





    I hope to use in the deep and steep!

    What in the fuck? Whoa, and here I am thinking how fucking stupid this hole pole cam fad is, and then whammo, a product designed just for that purpose. And just when I thought there is no way you can possibly top that you post up the "carvers" and then just when you think it's all over, you see the price. Mind = blown...wow.

    ... when you look at other prices for custom skis, it's cheap. The polecam should be be around $150 or more, not sure yet, I will definitely know in a couple of weeks. I'd rather get all my gear for free myself. Capitalism for ya.

    the newschoolers are coming.



    (when I saw this my head snapped back)

    Henrik Harlaut from Be yourself (7:23 -11:00) - disc. And there's been some lively debate on NS about poles or no poles.

    So I'm just waiting for Ian McIntosh to catch on in one of his high consequence lines.

    And for a while I thought this was all some elaborate troll. I don't know if I'm disappointed or amazed.

    I myself am humbled by the power of heart.

    And let the doorway open wide for you, comrade.

    As it is for me.


    (the first pic I saw of the "carvers")

    and so let the journey be wondrous for all the pioneers of heart.

    When I read your posts on this heart carve crap I found myself wondering "what the fuck is wrong with this guy?" And " is the most elaborate troll in the world?"

    Well then you go and make those godawful looking planks...............






    and TOTALLY ReDeem YOURSELF!!



    I still don't see the allure or rationality of it but who gives a fuck. Your dedication and perseverance in the face of everyone talking shit is pretty impressive. When you set your mind on something you commit and don't give a shit what others think, that's admirable. Now if you would just set your sights on something lucrative (and appealing to other people rather than JUST you) you will be a rich man someday.

    we all just slide down snow with crap attached to our feet, whose to say your crap is crap. As long as your having fun.

    I'm pushing forward anyway, thanks. To be rich in spirit is all that matters at this point (as you would appreciate) but not requiring a hospital stay to get there and still having some dollars to walk away with. hmmm, I'd actually like other ski makers to do an hc model with the logo and then I'll run the hc community website for group pontification. That may work. Let's see if there's demand for it.

    I should add: would be great for ski resorts to close off runs and put up obstacles and banked turns, like skier cross but less jumpy:



    how I see it... 1 skier at a time, maybe have safety barriers.

    Often the steepest runs at a resort get moguls... I'd like to see them stay fairly flat and people-free. Then the true power of the heart can manifest.

    Do you think anyone else is interested in this? This is a serious question.

    Have people ever approached you seriously asking how to get those skis or ski like you?

    I see this more as a hobby for you, but you could be onto something, look at the mono-ski. A bunch of sweaty nut sacks and some common sense later those things are just a novelty now.

    Thanks, there were some people on Newschoolers very interested initially, and obviously some haters, but I really need some new footage, which I'm getting.

    I know, right?

    And Idris is making the skis for him?

    Mind: Blown.

    I'm without a doubt the worst skier on this forum, but I still want to make fun of you.
